Miami Duo Securing Justice in Palm Beach!

On June 10, 2017, attorneys John W. “Jack” McLuskey and H.T. Smith won an important Summary Judgment that will prevent the state’s Sovereign Immunity aggregate cap for “claims arising out of the same incident or occurrence” from applying to the separate shootings of five children by their stepfather. The case involved wrongful death and negligence claims against the Florida Department of Children and Families stemming from DCF’s derelict oversight of a family of children who were victims of the worst mass murder-suicide in Palm Beach County history when Patrick Dell shot and killed four of his stepchildren and critically wounded another by shooting each in their bed as they slept. He also killed their mother, Natasha Whyte-Dell, and himself.

Fifteenth Circuit Judge David French ruled that Fla. Stat. § 768.28(5), which had a $200,000 aggregate cap at the time of the shootings in 2010, would not apply to bar the total recovery in this case, and held that the shooting of each child was a separate incident or occurrence. In ruling such, Judge French rejected the argument that the separate shootings were part of one singular incident or occurrence. He also rejected the argument that the incident or occurrence that would trigger the aggregate cap was DCF’s act of negligence, which DCF argued was a singular incident or occurrence.

Mr. McLuskey and Mr. Smith represented Ryan Barnett, who survived a .357 Magnum close-range shot to the neck, and his father, Michael Barnett, who filed claims on behalf of his three murdered children – Bryan Barnett, Daniel Barnett and Diane Barnett. Vincent Miller, Esq. represented Leroy Nelson, who filed a claim on behalf of his murdered son, Javon Nelson.
